Hills, what hills? There is only one!

POSTED BY ADAM HOWARD ON 26 MAY 2014

I had originally planned to run at Austwick however having read the entry details there was mention of full kit required, some of which I don't have.

To be honest after a having a heavy session on the ale on Saturday and it now taking me over two days to recover, any excuse was to be taken! Rather than do nothing I decided to look at other easier options.

Bowley Hill trail was the first race to get my attention and being only a 5.5 mile trail race how hard could it be? Anyway off I went with John McDonald.
The race starts in the middle of a big show (where cows had finished parading!) and all we could smell was burgers and hot dogs, how unfair!

Off all 46 of us went and I was determined not to finish last. John had told me earlier that there was only one hill so I was pleased that we reached this in the first mile.

One hill? There were about ten and that was before the hands on mountain that we had to climb! No idea where that one came from!

As many of you know I do not like hills especially when they are green, many others were walking so it did make me feel a little better. On the main climb a big grey horse thought it would be funny to race me up the hill and then stop right in front of the stile, really funny that thanks horse!

What goes up must come down and there were a good few downhills where I performed my bambi impressions. The last mile seemed to go on and on I'm sure I was running round in circles, which may explain why I ran nearly 5.9 miles in a 5.5 mile race.

It's probably the strangest race I've run in, there really is a bit of everything. The best part was the steak burger and pint of Black Sheep available at the finish.

It certainly is not an easy race but I suppose in a weird sort of way I did enjoy it. Nick Gaskell was there and finished in third place. Hopefully it will attract a bigger TAC turnout next year, just a shame it clashes with the Austwick race.
